There was a time more than 5 years ago when I knew what pant size to buy. I blindly bought 31 and knew they would fit. Then I grew fatter. So I bought 32s. But recently, 32s have become too loose without my losing any inches (old pants fit perfectly). And today I found the reason why. Lying manufacturers.
I recently bought some pants online and they are just too big. So thanks to this stupidity which is not even consistent acreoss brands, I have to skip the convenience of online shopping for pants. I can understand the small/medium/large changing size as the population grows in size, but why lie with the numbers? Will men soon suffer the fate of women with pant sizes like 2 or 4 or 6 or 8, instead of the real dimensions, which really have no meaning?
